Join us at The Loft Literary Center for a special evening as Eileen Myles presents their new memoir, Afterglow. Book sales provided by Milkweed Books. Afterglow joins a grand literary tradition of writers paying homage to a beloved dog, but Myles’ entry in the canon subverts both genre and tradition and stands apart as resolutely its own thing. Combining screenplay, monologue, science fiction, and lucid memory, the text is animated with photos, diagrams, drawings, and poems. Afterglow illuminates the surreal and familiar aspects of what it means to dedicate your existence to a dog.

Eileen Myles—who prefers to use a gender-neutral pronoun—is the author of more than twenty books, including Chelsea GirlsCool For You, and most recently, I Must Be Living Twice: New & Selected Poems 1975-2014.
